NON SPOILER THOUGHTS:
*deep breathing* Okay. I can do this. I can right a review/discussion. I just need to gather up my thoughts and –

Okay, enough gifs! (Not really) Let’s write!
If you’re wondering whether you should read the TMI series first or the TID, here’s my answer: Read TID first. I actually read the TMI series first and I did not get the hints and I didn’t understand this or that. You could actually be spoiled if you read TMI first so don’t do that!
I don’t have anything to write here now, but this is the best book in the series so go and read it!
Also, I will be saying TID spoilers as well so you need to read all of Cassie’s books in the Shadowhunter chronicles first.
ALSO, THIS REVIEW HAS A LOT OF GIFS BUT IT HAS WORDS TOO.
First we read the prologue and we were immediately introduced to Emma Carstairs! I like her immediately and she was very cool. Turns out she has Cortana, which was in Clockwork Princess! It was passed on to Carstairs because you know, Will denied it. We read on and then BAM! Sebastian’s there. He started forcing people to drink from the cup and the Blackthron guy was turned into Endarkened. Why.
Now Sebastian has attacked the Institutes so all the Shadowhunters are relocating to Idris. But his attack in the London Institute failed. Why? BECAUSE OF JESSAMINE. Magnus said there was this force who warned them or something like that and then he mentioned a ghost. IT’S JESSAMINE LOVELACE! AHHH! In my Clockwork Princess review I mentioned that I felt that it was unnecessary that Jess died but NOPE. JESS DIED FOR A REASON.
Anyway, going back to the Idris relocating thing, the gang, of course, was also going. Then, Magnus came and talked to Alec. (MALEC!) BUT THEN, Magnus said “…Watching someone you love age and die. I knew a girl once , immortal like me..” TESSA.
Then we go to Idris. Emma and Jules are there and we even have some Emma chapters which was veeeerryyy cool. Then they go to this Council meeting and Julian uses the Mortal Sword. Then Emma, being selfless girl that she is, takes it for him and talks to the Conusl and stuff. But Brother Z was there and Emma was there and CARSTAIRS REUNION!
Go back to Idris again and we see that Sebastian attacks Citadel. I still don’t understand WHY THE COUNCIL/CONSUL UNDERESTIMATES SEBASTIAN. OF COURSE HE HAS MORE ENDARKENED, HE’S EVIL AND CLEVER.
Then Jace and him fight and then he’s losing (I almost threw a party) then THE EARTH SWALLOWS HIM. NOT FAIRRRRRR!
Then (so many thens) we go to the downworlder party I think and MERILON (is that the bastard’s name?) BETRAYED THEM. UGH.
Then fast forward to other stuff, the werewolf fight happened. I didn’t even know you can do 2 vs.1 but I am glad that Bat and Maia won!
Then Team Good or the gang (Sizzy, Clace and Alec) go to Edom (?) and then they stumble upon the Alicante thing and I already knew that it was a trap. Jace and his risks.
Turns out she’s fine. Phew.
But Raphael dies. DAAAANG IT!
Fast forward to the ending, Sebastian Morgenstern becomes Jonathan Fairchild/Morgenstern (idk). AHHHHHHHHH. And when he had green eyes? AHHHHHHH. When he became Jonathan w/ green eyes, I didn’t hate him anymore. I hate Sebastian M. but not Jonathan F./M, so when he died I was like
Then we meet Magnus’s father and I already knew it was A something (i forgot) when they mentioned him. Poor Magnus.
I even thought that he died but he didn’t. Phew.
BUT HIS MEMORIES! WHYYYY
ALSO, MAGNUS IS STILL IMMORTAL! WHAT ABOUT MALEC?!
Then we go to the epilogue (i think) and Magnus does something to get Simon’s memories back and I didn’t understand how that happened but YES!
THEN WE HAVE A TESSA CHAPTER!
THEN SIMON MIGHT ASCEND!
THEN JACE CHOSE THE HERONDALES!
THEN HELEN WILL GO TO THE waiittt…
NO! HELEN! In the council meeting where they were discussing the Fair Folk’s fate, I was on Magnus’s side. But they didn’t believe Magnus. Then it was decided that Helen will go to a island (or something). NO. THAT IS NOT ALRIGHT. NO.
Maybe that’s the start of the TDA series or IDK.
ALSO THAT LETTER WITH THE LEAF THING SNEAK PEEK FOR TDA?! EMMA WILL BRING MARK BACK! (THAT’S MY THEORY.)
That’s it and thank you for reading and um, bye!
